Love With No Strings Attached

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, June 10, 2018

What would it be like to have an “immaculate heart”? Could it be to have a heart that loved unconditionally? When we are honest about it, much of what we call “love” is actually a sort of quid pro quo, a this-for-that type of exchange of affection. We love those who love us in return, who treat us well, who respect us. While there’s nothing wrong with that, is it possible that we could we open our hearts even more to embrace those who do not return our love in an equal measure? Could we even go so far as to love our enemies? Yes, it’s a tall order, but one worth striving for — an immaculate heart that loves unconditionally, much as a mother loves her child, as Mary loved her son. Practice loving without conditions. When you pray today, ask for an immaculate heart.
